They Now Permit Communi

General Menu.
Wasim.vuton, Aug. 2S. Shortly berore
midnight lo-nlRht the orders of Piel
dent Taft directing the Tenth liiMnti-.v
to proceed at once from I'nn.ima to
Corinto. Nicaragua, were revoked. Tho
regiment, which was to have left Pan
ivna to-niuirow. will remain In the
Canal Zone and hold itself In readiness
for further orders.
This action was decided on lo-nlcht
because the rebels havu craped their In
terference with communication between
Managua and Corinto on the west const.
The revolutionists nro still In forre at
Leon, tho largest city on tho lino of tho
railroad from the capltHl to tho am, but
have given up attempting to block tho
passage of the United States forces.
The navy has assured the Slate De
partnirnt to-nltjbt that tinder tneso cir
cumstances It will Iki able to keep com
munication opn. The cruiser Califor
nia, prepared to land sevi-ral hundred
bluejacket, will reach Corinto to-morrow
nl this force, naval officials ihj.
with tho murines and bluJuckcti al
icudy on the scene will be sufficient to
copo with the flt'iatlon for tho next
few days. Moio mnilnesi are due at
Corinto next !;. being now en route,
to Colon from Philadelphia and the ar
mored cruiser Colorado Is on her way
down the coast.
As tho chief purpose o." the Washing
ton Government In sending Nnd force
Into Nicaragua was to reestablish com
munications It Is held that the yielding
of tho rebels has relieved tho pituution
considerably. In soma quartcrr, how
over, this turn of the situation Is re
gretted, for the I oaf on it was hoped the
rebels would continue, their policy of
attempting to oppose the United Stitcj
to such a point that a sharp !;
might have been tidmluNtctvl n them.
For tho present, huwever. lb., nrmv will
not he called upon to assist In th Me
araguan flotation. 1
While advices from Nicaragua to th.-;
Stato and Navy departments are meagre j
enough of the situation la known here
to causa ofllcluls to regard It as so furi
ous as to constitute n rent crisis In Cen
tral America. Information reached hero
late this afternoon from the American
colony at Mntagalpa, near .Managua,
that tho foreign residents are In ynnu
danger. This colony cons-lHts ot :.bout
123 American ranchers and farmer", en
gaged In growing coffee principally.
Tho despatch received to-day wui de
layed In transmission, having been foi
warded from Hlueflclds on the east cosst.
Ucsldcs tho apprehensions regarding
the safety of these Americans, the In
dictment against tho rebels contains
many other counts. Appeals have bt.cn
received from more than a fcoro of
American business houses represented
and having property and employees In
Nicaragua asking for protection of
American life and property. Uiialness
men of New Orlcnns have protested
against the attitude of Senator Hacmi,
who opposed the use of the navnl and
military forces to protect American life
and property.
Steamships on Lai-.e Nicaragua and
Lako Managua have been seized from
their American owners by tho reM.,
and the railroad, also owned by Ameri
cans, from Managua to tho coast. Is
likewise partly In their hands. There
are In Managua a number of American
employees of the Nlcaraguan Govern
ment who must be protected. The
measures taken aro all ut the request
of tho Nlcaraguan Government, which,
admitting its Inability to protect for
eign life and property, has asked the
United States Government to perform
that function in Nicaragua.
In addition Minister Wrltzel has re
ported that the rebels under Gen. Menn
have brought about a condition of nf
falrs analogous to that existing In China
during the Iloxer uprisings, when the
forces of the Powers combined for the
relief of Pokln. The laws of humanity
and civilization have been Ignored by
tho rebels In firing upon hospitals and
churches, and MagH of truce, messen
gers or negotiation, iiuvv uii.il nit"
and armistices violated ruthlessly. Two
wounded Americans have been slaugh
tered on the way to the hospital and
women and children are reported to
have been killed. In every detail, In
fact, It Is considered at the .State De
partment that the extremely vlgotous
course being pursued Is amply Justified
by the situation.
The necessity for emphatic and dras
tic measures Is felt to be the greater
because of the effect that the develop
ments in Nicaragua will hnvo on other
Central Amerlcnn States subject to per
ennial disorders. Troublo maUors from
other Central American republics have
already entered Nicaragua, uttructed by
tho reign of disorder. They have been
arrested when found. Reports received
tliLs afternoon indicate that morn rovo
lutlonlsts aro approaching from the bor
der of Salvador. It Is feared that It tho
chaotic situation In Nicaragua Is not
remedied by tho United States soon
them will be danger of Inflaming thu
great part of Central America. Tho
Mena revolution In portly attributed to
h cnnvlctlou upon the part of tho for
mer Minister or War mat tne l;u le..
Mates has been blurting In Central
America and that ho would bo permitted
to do all he pleased In nn effort to over
throw the established Government.
It Is now regarded ou certain that the
Halted Staw " supervise the Hoc-
Hons In Nicaragua thli fall for the
choice of a successor to President Diaz,
whoso term expire January t next.
Such nn Intention has not yet been de
flared, but that It Is Inovitable Is prac
tlcaiiy conceded. The supervision prob
nbl will be clnillar to that oxorclfed In
anainn last month at the request of
mat Government. There nn American

Commissioner Iederie of the Health

Wnltor iVnsel. ac ting Commissioner, said
yesterday that ho couldn't see anything
to get nlarined at over tlie milk commit
tee's rniwrt. Ho admitted that low grudn
milk was sold in all sorts of places, but
said tliat it wouldn't hurt an adult to
drink ll. Ho added that it might lie
noted that tho death rate was going down
all the time.
"There Un I enough high grade milk
to go around," fcnld Dr. HciihoI, "nnd tho
result is that you don't nhvays get higli
grudo milk to drink in a hole) or tes-
t0 Drltetis-ol was asked if lie approved of
tho milk committee's Idea of forcing
hotel and restaurant keepers to mark
their milk in a way to show tho grade.
He said that ho would npprovo it just oh
soon as it was iiosslblo for them to obtain
un ample supply of tho high grade milk.
Anothsr xilnt wliore Dr. llensel and the
milk committee diifer is ronceming tho
coniimrntlvo value of laboratory work
und tho lnsoction of tho source or milk
supply. The milk committee believes,
and hopes to convert the Hoard of Eh
t imntn to its belief, that "II Hixnt in lab

Dr. HOIisoi nays nun iiio ijui iitioiuk" hi
work Is of importance in showing tho con
clit ion of tho milk, so tluit dirty milk may
lie traced from retnller to trausixirtation
ngenoy and back to tho dairy, with a
cleaning l Process along t ho lino.
Dr, llensel said that the milk com
mittee's report had Is-en considered by
the Health Department some time ago,
but that it had not liernt thought that any
iKirtioular net Ion was neotlod.
The big increase in the number of In
spectors for which the Health Depart
ment Iihh asked the Hoard of Estimate
would help a lot, Dr, llensel said, but It
must lie remomlred that the securing of
nn absolutely pure milk supply couldn't
bo done In a day.

Justice GofT nnd District Attorney
Whitman wcto in conference on the
John Doo Investigation plans laet night.
Their talk, which wan the last word In
t!io weeks of preparation for the In
quiry that will be begun next Tuesday
before Justice GofT, took placo at Justice
Goff's summer home at Mlllbrook.
When Mr. Whitman took his train yes
terday lie was convinced that the many
important matters to be constderael
meant n long night conference.
Among the subjects discussed between
the .Itistlco and Mr. Whitman was the
matter of retaining as a special assist
ant to Mr. Whitman for tho John Dew
proceedings u well known lawyer who
by many Is considered one of tho best
Jury advocates and cross-examiners at
tho New York bur. This attorney will
be expected to continue the John 3Doe
Inquiry with undiminished ncUvlty
whllo District Attorney Whitman Is oc
cupled with tho trials of Lieut. fJccker
and others fur tho murder or Herman
Tho list of witnesses was discussed.
Tho District Attorney had with him a
list which In all likelihood contains the
names of the men who actually will
It Is more than likely thut Mayor
Guynor will be asked to testify. Com
mlssloner Ithlnelander Waldo is on th
list, ns well ns First Deputy Police
Commissioner McKay. So Is Fourth

George S. Dougherty will be sub
poenaed. Tho namo. of Wintleld It.

Will Call Old Inprcliir Too.
The conference also went Into the
probable vnluc of calling police Inspec
tors of Manhattan and The Hronx. men
wiio formerly were inspector. and som
of tlie civilian employees of the depart
ment. Mr. Whitman's list does not Include
all of the Inspectors In Manhattan and
The Hronx. n full roster of whom would
contain the names ot Cornelius F. Ca
halane. John Daly, William F. Lahey.
George F. Titus, Dennis Sweeney, John
J. Farrell, Kdwurd Hughes nnd John F.
Dwyer, tho recent successor of n.
j nellus G. Hayes.
me inspectors wno may expect to bu
called to testify are Daly, Dwyer, Titus.
Sweeney nnd perhaps Inspector Farrell
of The Ilron:;.
If Mayor Gay nor Is called, which Is
probable, lie will be subpienncd largely
because the probers ivrd want to brlnr;
out the Mayor's Interpretation of his
"outward order nnd decency" Idea. This
will he asked fr.i- on the belief that nn
authoritative Interpretation will be
needed to combat any tendency to twist
tho Mayor's phrase Into u defenco or
the charges against Inspectors.
Much time was given to the nam
on the witness list, taking them In con
nectlon with eighty pages or Informa
tion concerning graft conditions on
which the John Doe Investigation Is
Hrnr Meeker Know Hiding; Place.
Just beforo Mr. Whitman took up
"um nun juniiro uoic last nignt
an unusual story concerning the where
abouts of Gyp tho Hlood and Lefty
Lotilo camo to the District Attorney's
ears. Tho story concerns tho probable
knowledge held by Lieut. Ueckcr and his
frleiidn n4 lo Mi., nr.. on huinn niM

of tin- two fugitives.
I The District Attorney's Informant
1 to111 that there Is reason to be
llevo that Decker knows where Gyp

found now and that Decker with the
passivo ami perhaps active aid of cor-
j t,lll men in tho Police Department Is

until iiitu. iihiiiuii vvmcn wouui
lend to un Immediate capture.
Tho Information that came to Mr.
Whitman continues that Decker and
certain members of tlie police force
hope to produce Gyp tho Hlood ond
Lefty Louie when Decker Is tried end
thus aid the Indicted lieutenant In his
own defence. The Decker plan, ns told
to Mr. Whitman, Is that the two pistol
men will take the stand ut the right
moment nnd swear that they saw Jack
Hose, Ilrldglo Webber and Harry Val
Ion do the actunl killing of Rosenthal.
Following this Information, despite
Becker's denial that Martin W. Little
ton had been asked to defend him, cnm

on the condition that ho received assut

lawyers nnd friends that Decker had not
been guilty of grafting.
After this ultimatum, the nssuvanco

made, but none concerning his stipula
